Meet the WISIONS Team at the 6th Annual Conference of the LCEDN in Durham, UK

The WISIONS team will participate in the LCEDN 6th Conference on Equity and Energy Justice on 11th and 12th September 2017 in Durham, United Kingdom.

The Low Carbon Energy for Development Network (LCEDN) comprises internationally-renowned universities and thriving energy research institutes, alongside partnerships with the UK’s Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) and expanding worldwide associations.

Working within the broad framework of the UN’s policy of promoting Sustainable Energy for All (SE4ALL) this year’s conference is based on the principle that without equity of access and energy justice, there can be no sustainability. The conference will therefore include papers involving any aspect of energy systems emerging to meet the distinctive energy needs of the ‘bottom of pyramid’, lowest quintile in the global south which can contribute to the understanding of how equity and justice are essential components of sustainability.

The WISIONS team will present a paper entitled How Can Energy Access Lead to Improved Living Conditions? What Elements Can Trigger Productive Energy Use in Energy-Poor Areas? on 11 September, 3:15 PM.

More information on the conference programme and venue is available on LCEDN’s website.
